    DefaultInteresting ways to get your dog's full attention...

    There are a couple of things that I can do (without making a peep) to get my dog's 100% full attention and heeled at my side.

    1.) If I touch or brush up against the leashes and collars and they clang....*bam* right there they are...sitting in anticipation.
    2.) If I crack open a banana....in almost two seconds flat, they are right next to me.

    What interesting things do you do that get your dog's full attention without the use of commands?

    Stand in the livingroom/kitchen doorway. That's the end of the key rack where the laser pointer hangs.

    Total Ditto!!! Two Banana-hounds over here, big time!!

    Also, if I sit on the floor in the living room they will come over and wait intently for the game of puppy-wrestle that is bound to ensue. ;D

    If I say the word "HUNGRY" in passing conversation. Sometimes I don't notice even.

    Or if I am in the kitchen and open the drawer where their food is...

    Open the laundry room door (his food is stored in there). He'll come running and sit just outside the door watching. Doesn't matter if I'm just folding laundry, he'll sit intently watching me just hoping it's feeding time (even if he just ate!).

    Can opener, but that's pretty common.

    Put on my hoodie. He goes with me 99% of the time so he knows what it means.

    Open the patio door....heaven forbid anyone go out back without her.
    Bring a towel out from the bedroom because that means it is time to go for a swim.
